“It is my job to run a global company, but within my job, what still gives me the most satisfaction is seeing someone pick up a controller and finding surprise and delight. What touches their heart still touches my heart.”

“On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer.”

– Satoru Iwata (6th of December 1959 – 11th of July 2015), President of Nintendo

He was not just a businessman, he was somebody that we knew, he was … one of us.

Thank you for everything, domo arigato.
May you rest in peace, and may the memory of you live on with all of us.

Sayonara, Iwata-san.
